The blood of the Electric Ray contains a number of hemoglobin components. The primary structures of the alpha- and beta-chains of the main components are presented. These chains were purified by high-performance liquid chromatography, using a new buffer system. The alpha-chains consist of 141 residues, and the beta-chains of 142 residues; both are unblocked. The phylogenetic distances from human alpha- and beta-chains are 55% and 64% amino-acid exchanges, respectively. The relationship between… CONTINUE READING
